The 83rd Oscar nominations race hots up at the Academy Awards Ceremony

The Oscar battle is once again upon us as film makers, musical directors, actors, script writers and a whole host of other titles relating to the movie industry slug it out for a coveted Oscar Award.

As always, there will be surprises, triumphs and gripes; but the Oscar Award Ceremony is always an exciting affair for lovers of films everywhere.

So what’s happening so far and who is in the running?

Up for grabs - the much coveted Oscar

It looks like The King’s Speech, which sees Colin Firth depicting a rather stuttery King George VI, is currently heading the pack in the race for Best Picture, although keen competition is being provided by True Grit, the remake of the classic western which originally starred Clint Eastwood.

Hot on their heels are Inception, the sci-fi thought provoker about dream manipulation, and The Social Network which tells the controversial tale of Mark Zucherberg, founder (and in some opinions, thief) of Facebook.

The Fighter is another film in the shake up, and both Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale will be hoping to receive some recognition for their respective parts, not to mention the drastic changes they made to their bodies.

Here’s a list of the top 10 nominations for Best Picture:

One thought on “The 83rd Oscar nominations race hots up at the Academy Awards Ceremony

  1. No surprises here really other than Christopher Nolan NOT getting nominated for Best Director. What a snub! I also thought The Social Network was severely overrated and got most of its attention due to the subject matter rather than the movie as a whole. I’m a big David Fincher fan and he’s never let me down. Good movie but it didn’t make my Top Ten. I thought Howl was by far the best movie of the year with its combination of animation, acting (James Franco as Allen Ginsberg), and cinematography.
